Gaining weight, time and a place

image007[1]Today at the gym there was a younger guy that was making a bit of spectacle of himself.  He had his head set on with music turned up loud enough that anyone within 10 feet of him could tell what he was listening to.  There is a problem with playing music that loud, you can’t hear yourself.  As he was doing his reps of various exercises, most of which heavily relied on bounce and momentum he was doing super loud breathing that could be heard across the very expansive gym floor of the Wellness Center.  He backed this up with doing things like beating his chest after sets, I suppose so we all knew he was in beast mode.  There is definitely a time and place for that sort of stuff, just not at the community hospital Wellness Center, duh.

I did some weighted dips for the first time in quite awhile.  Like most of my gym  performances recently, it was subpar.
